Answers can be found BELOW. Good Luck.
1. RVD's ECW theme music was edited so that it replayed the chorus over and over again. Kind of annoying, because it got old after 30 seconds, and they would've been better off keeping the original so as to make the chorus more special. Name this song and the band who performed it.
2. "Balls to the Wall" by Accept might have been a better fit, but Balls Mahoney used a different song. Name the song and band.
3. DDP had to use a Pearl Jam knock-off song for his entrance in WCW, but Tommy Dreamer got to use the real thing. What Pearl Jam song did Tommy use for years?
4. Here's an easy one. Name the song and band who performed the Sandman's theme music.
5. During the initial Raven character development stage, he came to the ring to what Offspring song?
6. Paul Heyman compared early 90s WWF/WCW to 80s hair bands, yet ECW used plenty of "hair bands" in their music like Jackyl, Ugly Kid Joe, AC/DC, Pantera, and Fight. Kind of hypocritical, eh Paul E.?? Lots of '80s metalheads populated the ECW locker room like Chris Jericho, Blue Meanie, Nova, Stevie Richards, Raven, Jerry Lynn, Matty in the House, and of course Heyman himself. It's that rock n roll element that is missing from squeaky-clean ROH, and I wish they'd change that. But amidst all that rock music, the soft and jazzy theme music from this 90s hit movie closed out many ECW TV shows in 1995 that recapped all the feuds and ran in the background of the show-closing promos.
7. Spike Dudley's LSD gimmick complemented his entrance music perfectly. Name the song and band.
8. Public Enemy were white rappers, so they came to the ring using a rap song. During their 1994/1995 heyday, Rocco Rock and Johnny Grunge had the fans' hands waving to what song?
9. Very early ECW saw a music video called "Ruffneck" used to promote this former WCW/WWE wrestler. His nickname was also the "Rough Neck," and he wrestled with sunglasses. Name him.
10. This Guns N Roses song, not surprisingly, was often used to promote ECW's infamous November to Remember shows. Since the show was in NOVEMBER, it makes sense that Heyman chose this Guns N Roses song to promote it with. Name the song.
-RVD used "Walk" by Pantera, later covered by Kilgore. Either answer was accepted. We got many emails from people who didn't like Pantera being called a hair band. Pantera did a great job of hiding their past, because apparently these people are unaware of Pantera's look and sound before they hit it big. News flash: Pantera were as glam as glam could be back in the '80s. You know, when Rex was "Rex Rocker" and Phil Anselmo had his hair sprayed and teased to the sky. Not that this is a bad thing, because I'm a mega-fan of the 1980s Sunset Strip metal scene and am one of its historians.

-Balls Mahoney used "Big Balls" by AC/DC.
-Tommy Dreamer used "Evenflow" by Pearl Jam. For those who asked, he also used "Man in the Box" by Alice in Chains (who used to open for Poison, by the way) years later. And yes, I did goof up. DDP used a Nirvana ripoff song, not a Pearl Jam ripoff song. Chris Jericho is the one who used a Pearl Jam ripoff song.
-Sandman used "Enter Sandman" by Metallica.
-Raven came out to "Come Out and Play" by Offspring.
-The show-closing music in 1995 ECW TV was from the movie "Pulp Fiction."
-Spike Dudley used "Highway to Hell" by AC/DC.
-Public Enemy used "Here Comes the Hotstepper."
-The Ruffneck was Mr. Hughes.
-November to Remember used "November Rain."
